Irelia Runes and Masteries

Irelia Runes:

Reds: Armor Pen

Yellows: Armor or Scaling Armor

Blues: Magic Resist, Scaling Magic Resist

Quintessences: Movement Speed, Armor Pen, or Health

Irelia Masteries:

Defensive is best with Irelia 0/21/9 as it makes her pretty much unstoppable in lane, allowing her to farm incredibly well. 21/0/9 is also viable with offensive masteries, but defensive is best. Utility masteries suck with Irelia.
